A Few Residents of Laughing Dove Farm

A few of my Jacob Sheep grazing in the front pasture between the house and the gravel road.
A mama hen with chicks she hatched out and tends.
One of my ewe lambs. I had 19 healthy lambs born here this year , doubling my flock of sheep !

 This little curly mama hen hatched out her brood of chicks under our new chicken house. They are tiny bantams and will be tiny when grown up. She and her rooster are very protective of their chicks. The rooster / father of the chicks is a self-blue d'uccle I got from my oldest grandson a few years ago
Whimsy, one of our 4 dogs. She is my constant companion and protector.
Life is so good here, especially because I am blessed to share it with people and animals I love.

Your bantam hens are so adorable. Always been a favorite of mine. All looks lovely at Cedar Pond.

Thank you for sharing more loveliness from your farm. I truly enjoyed the photos and your words. A little mini virtual vacation.

Happy Summer enjoying each day and all of your critters.

I just love seeing all of your animals! This is truly a joy to me, as I love farming and homesteading, and currently can't do what I used to. (Someday, though!) I'm happy you've got so many wonderful animals!

I can't believe you were able to move all of those critters but I am glad you did. It is so fun to see.

Your animals are lovely and have obviously settled down really well at your new address.
The little chicks are adorable. Fancy having them under the shed! She must have decided that that was the safest place to rear them.
